Police arrest three people in possession of stolen voter registration materials in Eastleigh

The suspects were found with 33 voter registration forms

An Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission official registers voters in Eldoret town.

Nairobi County commander Japheth Koome said three suspects are in police custody and they have recovered voter registration materials stolen from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Mr Koome said that the suspects were found with 33 voter registration forms in Eastleigh.

The suspects are currently being held at the Pangani police station.

Reports doing round on social media had earlier alleged that BVR kits that were stolen during a raid on Arabia Administration Police camp in Mandera last week had been recovered in Eastleigh.

However the IEBC have clarified that the voter materials recovered were copies of transfer forms and not BVR kits as earlier alleged.

No extension

The commission warned that it was illegal for anyone to purport to be registering or transferring voters without authority from them and urged Kenyans to remain calm as police carry out investigations into the matter.

They again maintained that there will be no extension on registration of voters which ends on Tuesday.

Commander Koome said that beside the forms, no other IEBC equipment has been recovered.

The militants also destroyed an Administration Police (AP) camp and burnt a mobile telecommunication mast operated by Safaricom Limited in the attack.

However days later, the Somalia based militant group Al Shabaab denied claims that they made away with IEBC BVR kits.
